Rabbits are an introduced pest to Australia and are declared as “established pest animals” under the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994. Every landowner, including the City, is responsible for the control of rabbits on their land.

To successfully control rabbits on a landscape scale we need a long-term plan with an integrated management approach and coordinated effort with the community.

Consultation sessions held late August at Leopold Community Hub, Lara Community Centre and the National Wool Museum were an opportunity for the community to provide input into the Plan.  

If you missed these sessions but would still like to contribute, you can do so by completing the survey below. This survey will close at the end of the rabbit consultation period on 16 September 2019.
